I’ve had a tenant that stopped paying and the tribunal gave them quite some time to move, so I ended up out of pocket just over $2k. This occurred in late April, which is also when I asked my property manager what I can do in regards to getting this owed money back. I got no response to my email, but when I called them early May, they said that they would hand it over to a debt collection agency, that it would not cost me any money and that this would be the best cause of action. I had heard nothing back, so early this month (I probably let it slide a bit too long) I sent a couple of emails to the property managers. Now I find out that they only went to QCAT to get possession, but not for a warrant of compensation. I raised this with my PM and he said that you can only ask for one or the other, is this true? Even if it is, they should still have tried to get the warrant of compensation in my opinion. Not only did they not try and get compensation, I found out that they only handed the details over to debt collection agency this month, so there were at least 65 days of inaction on their part. To make things worse, when I talked to the debt collectors, they told me that there is a six month time limit on trying to get money back and that they can’t really do much without a warrant for compensation. Does anyone have any bright ideas of what I should do now, other than pushing the PM to go to get the warrant of compensation? Do I have any recourse to try and get the money off the PM?
